________________________________________________

Bi-Monthly Uke Sessions: 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of each month. Come at 6:45 pm to tune-up and talk. We play from 7 to 9 pm.  During the summer we meet at Biddle's Escape, 401 Biddle Ave., Regent Square, PA 15221. During the winter season we meet at Wilkins School Community Center, 7604 Charlston Ave., Regent Square, PA 15218.

Format: Moderator leads each session, warming up with old favorite tunes. A suggested playlist with old and new tunes is posted prior to each session. After we play and make announcements, we jam "song-circle" style. The setting is friendly and informal with no commitment required - just bring your uke and join us. We encourage solo play for advanced players.

Music: Our text is "The Daily Ukulele, 365 Tunes." We also use tunes from websites, such as Dr. Uke. If you would like to introduce a new song to the group, please bring a minimum of 20 copies to pass out.

Experience: None required! All levels are welcome, from beginners to professionals. If you don't know the chords... just sing louder.

    Do you think someone could add audio or video clips of each of the new songs that are posted so we have something to work on. I do better if I hear the tunes before practicing and then have something to practice with from week to week. Just a suggestions!

      Usually someone does post, but we were crowd-sourcing the list last time so it may have been missed. If you like a good audio to work with, check out Dr. Uke's site. Almost everything--including Rubber Duckie--has an audio clip that you can practice along with. Have fun!

    Amber did a superb job at leading the session last evening. This was my very first time playing with the main group and I was very impressed with the way the session was led. I am really new to the ukulele and feel that Ambers approach to teaching was extremely helpful to me. Although I am not playing at the Ecofest I stayed for the preformance practice session because I wanted to hear the songs the group plays so I can take them home and work on them. Thanks for all the hard work you all put into the group. I had allot of fun and will definitely be back for more!!!!!!
